Microneedling Is the Skincare Gadget That Will Change Your Skin

David Ruff

Microneedling is the key to smoother, tighter, and more youthful skin. Recently, it has become a staple in my skincare routine. Basically, the purpose of microneedling is to produce more collagen in your skin. Microneedling is typically done at clinics or with your dermatologist but now there are at home microneedling kits! I am always in love with trying new innovative skincare techniques to spice up my daily routine. Since I have heard so many great things about the GloPro (shop it here), when I got it sent to me, I couldn't wait to try! 

When I put the derma rolling kit from GloPro on my Instagram Stories, I got many questions as to what it actually was and did. When you roll the derma roller on your face, it actually ruptures and destroys the surface layer of your skin in attempt to speed up your collagen production. Most people are scared or intimidated by the idea of putting needles on your face, but I was up for the challenge. You might be saying "Ow! That must hurt!", but on the roller, there are tiny needles pinching your skin so you barley feel it.

It has this unique feeling that you know it is working but is not painful. After your skin is used to it, it feels relaxing. I love microneedling when watching my favorite TV shows (you can read that blog post here). At first, I thought that there would be instant results but you only see a difference after a couple weeks. The instructions suggest that you use the GloPro anywhere from 2-3 days a week. Also, using it during the nighttime is most effective since collagen production is higher. It definitely helps my skin seem tighter, less bloated, reduce fine lines, and even out my complexion. 

Before jumping into using your derma roller there are a few essential steps you need to follow. 

1. Wash your face

Many people tend to skip washing their face before skin treatments, but it is so important to get rid of that excess dirt and oils on your skin. The roller needs to be effective without anything blocking the target points of your skin. Plus, you don't want to puncture any type of "muck" further into your skin.

2. Use a Serum

My kit provided a serum, but any other serum will do! When choosing a serum, make sure it has no alcohol or acids in it. Apply the serum right after you finish rolling so it sinks into your skin. 

3. Clean the Roller

You want to sanitize your roller before using it again, you never want any filth penetrating back into your skin once you use it again. My kit came with an alcohol spray bottle, but you can use just about anything to clean your roller that is safe, such as rubbing alcohol. Cleaning is so so so important, don't get lazy!

Overall, my experience with the GloPro has been amazing! I do suggest you purchase a kit for yourself. But before doing so, know what works for your skin type. If your skin is very sensitive or irritated, I think puncturing fragile areas of your skin will only provoke further irritation. As I said, see if this product is right for you! I can only provide my experiences and expertise, but you should also educate yourself more with other reliable sources such as a dermatologist or magazine article.
